Yetur Gross-Matos Listed As Starter On Panthers’ First Unofficial Depth Chart
Former Penn State football defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos is listed as a starter on the Carolina Panthers’ first unofficial depth chart.
Although the depth chart is subject to change and will remain fluid all year long, he’s currently set to start at the right defensive end position for the Panthers.
The star defensive end played three seasons with the Nittany Lions and totaled 111 tackles, 36.5 for a loss, and 18.5 sacks. He earned multiple All-Big Ten honors throughout his career and became one of the best defensive players in the Big Ten by the time he was drafted.
Gross-Matos and the rest of the Panthers’ defensive line could potentially cause major problems for opposing offenses this season. He joins Derrick Brown (2020 first-round pick), Brian Burns (2019 first-round pick), and Kawann Short (two-time Pro Bowl selection) on the defensive line.
He is the only Penn State rookie to be listed as a starter on their teams’ respective depth charts. Other Nittany Lion rookies — KJ Hamler, Cam Brown, Dan Chisena, and Blake Gillikin — are all currently listed as backups. Additionally, John Reid’s Houston Texans have yet to release their initial depth chart.
Gross-Matos and the Panthers will kick off their season at 1 p.m. Sunday, September 13 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
